General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee), and elsewhere
This is figured in Moths of Victoria, part 8, as Pantydia sp. (1). It is also on Bold as Pantydia ANIC4.
About 17mm long with wingspan of about 38mm.
The ventral pattern on the hindwing separates this from other Pantydia species.
Males have slightly thicker antennae and are more difficult to id (vary more) than the females; which (females) also have a thicker body.
Interestingly this perfect specimen (very fresh?) shows a medial spot under each hindwing which isn't very obvious in other resources.
